    well i bought some h10 hid for my fog lights the other day and when i installed it it looked fine. but i noticed when i parked infront of a wall the lights would be vibrating a little bit. i just want to find out if this was normal for fog lights to do this because i've had hid in my headlights for about 2 years now n they havent ever vibrated.

    it was more of a flicker.
    well today i was driving then i noticed the right side fog light was off, so i turned off my light then turned it right back on; thats when the left side changed color from 3000k to 4300k i was surprised so i turned it off completly for about 4 hours went back outside to check on it again. now it wont turn on at all. i think the ballast might b messed up, oh wells that's what happens when you buy the 50 dollar hid system XD. at least i got the one year warrenty, hopefully they let me exchange it for the one hundred dollar system that i have in my headlights >_<

    Where did you buy them from? Swap capsules and ballasts to narrow down the problem.

    There's not much you can do. Check your grounds. If that doesn't work, faulty parts.

    For some reason I don't think that's the cause of the problem.

    yea when you get lights flickering its normally a bad ballast or bulb about to go out

    Race Factory gets ALL of their parts from China. I know the owner of the shop, and I'm 100% sure of this.

    If you notice, he only tries to portray a "JDM/Japan" image. He never openly claims that he has any ties to Japan. Hell, the shop is called "Race Factory" and they do not compete in any form of competition, nor have they ever.

    Do yourself a favor and and buy your HIDS from DDM Tuning

    Here are some photos of the Raptor Kit

    These Ballast could go through a war zone,Very Heavy Duty Construction! Very nice quality for such little money Your not gonna find another HID kit that comes close to this one for $29.95 plus shipping

    I also noticed the their bulbs are much higher quality then most HID kits that sell for around $100.00 or even more

    You also get instructions a nice little decal,double sided tape and zip ties
